Create a shell script somewhere in your hard drive. Have a file called, for
example, jar_me.sh, which contains:
java -jar ~/PATH/my.jar
Having got that 'script', open the KDE file manager and drag the script to
your desktop to create a shortcut, a copy or move the file to Desktop. You
can just create the file in Desktop, but I prefer to be tidy and keep just
shortcuts in Desktop.
